Unsightly veins on the back of the hands generally a result of age rather than venous disease. They become more prominent as skin grows thinner and subcutaneous tissue is lost during the aging process.
Removal of hand veins is a purely cosmetic and can restore a more youthful appearance.
Hand veins are generally treated with a combination of microphlebectomy with cryo- anesthesia and cryo- sclerotherapy. There is very little discomfort and requires only mild pain relievers in the hours following.
